This rare Hakutsuru kata of Kumemura Village; Okinawa fully demonstrated on this DVD; is perhaps the most beautiful in karate's repertoire of forms. Shrouded in-mystery; this kata was brought to Kumemura by Chinese visitors from Fukien Province; and perpetuated by Bushi matsumura; Kenwa mabuni; Shinko Matayoshi; Gokenki; and Hohan Soken. On this video Master George Alexander; world renowned martial arts historian and karate-ka; expertly performs and explains the kata. Master Alexander is known for his clear and concise bunkai; and self defense interpretations. Approx. 60 minutes Full Color.
